Des Moines police have filed charges against a homeless woman after another woman claimed she was hit with a bratwurst. A police report shows 31-year-old Tajuana Banks is accused of throwing the brat at 63-year-old Connie Jones Tuesday afternoon at Jones’ home on Des Moines’ east side.
Officers took Banks into custody and charged her with simple assault after finding a grease stain on Jones’ shirt. Jones told investigators Banks regularly comes to her home and tries to start an argument.
On Tuesday, police say Jones refused to fight Banks, so Banks picked up the bratwurst and launched it at Jones. Jail records indicate Banks has been arrested 11 times on various charges over the past four years.
